Six pack of cans from Julio’s. This is a hazy light amber brew. Frothy off-white head into the glass. Strong aroma of spice and spruce. Flavor is malty up front with layers and layers of bitterness. Slightly muddled, with a very bitter finish. Not very refreshing at all, but a solid IPA.

12oz bottle pour from Douglas88, thanks!! Pours a dark gold with minimal head. No tracing but a very solid IPA. Citrus and earthy notes with a slightly bitter finish.

Strong citrus hop aroma, golden bodied with a lemony zing to the flavor. Packaging is top notch, custom bottle and appealing label, however, the IPA was focused squarely on hop aroma. I would have liked a deeper overall bitterness and more malt backbone.

Shared from cans into Duvel goblets, thanks Scott! It poured a mostly-clear golden colour, some chill haze, with sudsy white foam which quickly dissipated. Fairly neutral grainbill, just a hint of caramel sweetness, definitely a hops-forward balance. Strong hoppy bitterness, flavour and aroma. Struck me a mostly a Columbus which cuts right through anything, contributing resiny character too, but supplemented with some other fruitier and citrusier varieties. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, well-concealed alcohol, dry finish with lingering hoppy aftertastes. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 12 oz bottle This was purchased at The Caboose in Ashland, VA. The ale poured a hazy orange. There was a nice head and frothy white head with lacing down the glass. . There is a strong apricot taste . There is nice floral taste that is detected at the finish. This is excellent IPA great appearance and the apricots make this a unique ale. The carbonation is average but creates a nice head. This is a winner with a nice dry finish that has you coming back for more.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 14, 2011
A clear medium amber body with a white head that had great retention and mild lace. Aroma had some corn malts, a nice peach note and mild hops, mostly grapefruit. Flavor was more fruity than sweet. No real caramel malt base, but peach notes were nice. Hops were slightly bitter in the finish. A smooth body and easy to drink.

Light notes of hops and citrus. Light and watery upfront but the hops hit you in the end. Medium mouthfeel. Bottle.
